If you have followed How to Make a Full Housing Joint part 1, you can now continue to glue the pieces together.
Start by applying glue in the housing.
Apply generously but evenly.
Now, apply a thin layer on the tenon.
Use the mallet to assemble the pieces together and place it between the jaws of a T-bar Clamp.
Place a paper below the glued part of the joint and a piece of scrap wood to protect the piece from the jaw of the clamp.
Tighten the clamp half way and wipe away any extra glue with a damp cloth.
Use a mallet to correct the position of the fit as you check it with a try square.
Apply sawdust at the edges of the joint and let the glue dry.
Once the glue has dried, unclamp the joint and fix it by the tenon on a vice.
Use a bench plane to plane both the sides, untill it is consistent and smooth.
Now, turn the joint over so that you can clean the corners.
Use a bench chisel to pare along the corners untill you have a smooth finish free of dried glue or splinters.
You have now learnt how to make a full housing joint.
